    I got my NH out of state by downloading the app and attaching a copy of my SC permit. The fee went up recently, but it does add GA, AL and several others.

    It's a bit cheaper...and almost exact same reciprocity if you get AZ. I got mine in 14 days.

    PLEASE BE ADVISED!

    Unfortunately, this is incorrect. SC does NOT recognize reciprocity with DE.
    DE may recognize a SC CWP as a valid permit to carry in their state; however, there is no reciprocity agreement, and SC does not recognize DE permits.

    According to Handgunlaw.us it is a mutually signed agreement.

    and according to the DE AG Page the other state must agree in order for DE to honor theirs...

    Pursuant to 11 Del.C. ' 1441(j), as of July 11, 2003, Delaware law allows residents of other states who have been issued a concealed deadly weapon license or permit by certain other states to lawfully carry concealed deadly weapons in Delaware if the state that issued the permit or license also recognizes Delaware's concealed deadly weapons licenses, and if Delaware's Attorney General also determines that the concealed deadly weapons licensing or permit laws in the issuing state "afford a reasonably similar degree of protection as is provided by licensure in Delaware." The Attorney General has determined that only states that require proof of training in firearms safety as a part of their licensing or permit process can meet this requirement.
    Sounds like it goes both ways to me.

    SLED must sign the agreement, and according to the SLED Regulatory Office (the department that oversees all aspects of CWP), there is no such agreement with DE. I wouldn't want to be the test case for this one.

    Did you call and speak with SLED?

    I think you are correct! If you do a Google search you will see this claim on every gun site. I think when I saw this it came in the form of an email from GOA or ILA. After doing some more research I think I found where the mistake was made. If you read DE's site you will see this statement.

    However, as of today Delaware does not recognize the concealed deadly weapon licenses or permits issued by states other than those listed below, and these states do not recognize Delaware's concealed deadly weapons licenses as valid.
    They reconize SC but SC doesn't reconize DE. Someone saw DE had added SC to their list of acceptable permit holders and assumed there was an agreement made between the two states. Bottom line is you can carry in DE with an SC permit but DE residents with a permit can't carry in SC. It's still a gain for us on one side of the board...

    The wording on the DE AG web site is very confusing and I am not sure what he is trying to say. At first is almost appears that he is saying that no one recognizes DE permits so I don't know. He does give the impression that DE will recognize SC but I can't say for sure or the other way around.

    But as I quoted above....DE will only recognize another state IF that other state recognizes theirs.
